Sorry if I'm not a psycopath.

It`s not so much that you`re psychopath. At best you`re naive and at worst an idiot.

The evidence I`ve presented suggests that, in most cases, a well-armed population correlates with a less violent and safer population. So, to be plain, first world countries with a higher percentage of armed citizens, on the average, enjoy lower homicide rates.

This evidence completely contradicts your statement that I requested a citation for:

"The fact that anyone can get a gun will drastically increase the homicide ratio"

Please cite some sort of statistically meaningful evidence to support this claim.

@Canoas

If someone is intended on killing you then a gun won't protect you

Ummm... You`re kidding, hopefully. Seriously, just type something in the realm of "My Gun Saved My Life" into Google (or Bing I suppose) and I`m sure you`ll find countless cases that completely disprove your stance.

But no, seriously, conjecture is like, so totally more persuasive than first-hand accounts and stuff - and like, common sense man. <--- This is what I think of you.

[quote]should you be able to shoot someone in order to protect your phone/tv/etc?[/quote]
Well this is an interesting tangent - albeit completely unrelated to what we`ve been discussing.

[quote]Your phone/tv/etc is not more valuable than a human life[/quote]
Well hell, might as well just hand over my house and car while I`m at it. After all, they`re just "stuff" right; I shouldn`t protect them.

@5cats
the sentence is perfectly coherent

@HumanAction
"Based on this, you are suggesting that you prefer a system where people are completely at the mercy of their biological constraints; they do not have the option of protecting themselves."
If someone is intended on killing you then a gun won't protect you, so this isn`t about protecting yourself at all, it`s about protecting your materialistic assets. So, the question you`re really asking is, should you be able to shoot someone in order to protect your phone/tv/etc? No, you shouldn`t. Your phone/tv/etc is not more valuable than a human life. Sorry if I`m not a psycopath.

"Where exactly is the evidence you are citing? I`ve shown you mine, now you show me yours."
It`s the exact same one you`ve cited.

Half of everybody in Columbia dies from guns? 49.52% of every 100,000 people. Am I reading this wrong?

Whew, let's continue shall we?

The fact that anyone can get a gun will drastically increase the homicide ratio

Where exactly is the evidence you are citing? I`ve shown you mine, now you show me yours.

[quote]the more guns there are in a country where guns aren`t available to the public the higher the homicide rate[/quote]
Again, please cite your evidence here. I`ve shown you a statistical analysis of first-world countries that suggests the complete opposite.

[quote]Anyone who isn`t retard can understand this[/quote]
... and the word of the day is: retard.

[quote]but I can`t say I`m surprised you don`t.[/quote]
Well shucks, I`m honored. Clearly your presentation of emotionally-charged, statistically-absent arguments demonstrates a superior intellect - especially compared to my lousy statistics. Oh wise one, I offer you my humblest sarcasm.
